Tips for Using our Free Printable Lunch Box Notes for Tweens
Download our free file, and print out as many copies as you like for personal use.
Use card stock to help the lunch box notes hold up better. Regular paper is ok, but not as durable.
Cut the lunch box notes apart using a personal paper trimmer or scissors. Add a heart or a signature in ink if you like.
Put them in baggies with each child’s name on the bag, so you don’t use the same note twice for the same child. Save the file to pull out and print again in a couple months though!
Add a small set of markers or colored pencils to your tween’s lunch box – these notes are also little mini coloring pages and can help relieve stress!
Attach the lunch box note to one of your child’s food items to make sure she sees it before it ends up in the trash! You could print them on full sheet sticker paper to make them part of the food wrap, or you can attach them with double-sided tape or maybe even washi tape for extra flare. You can also hole punch our lunch box notes for tweens, and use twine or ribbon to tie the note around a bag of food to seal it. That gives it double duty!
